ISSUE-2272 (star): Add new basic element for stars and regular polygons [SVG Core 2.0]

http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/WG/track/issues/2272

Raised by: Doug Schepers
On product: SVG Core 2.0

For simplifying hand- and script-authoring, we should add a new element to allow the creation of stars, regular polygons, spirals, and other shapes.  Dr. Olaf suggests the <polar> element, and has a sophisticated proposal for how it would work.  This would allow for very mathematical (and visually appealing) shape representation.

My early proposal:
